An Edible “Advent Calendar” in Mexico City

Submitted by on November 26, 2018 – 8:21 amNo Comment

La Palomilla, Mexico City, MexicoLa Palomilla Bed and Breakfast in Mexico City will be whipping up holiday dishes at a frantic pace to help guests enjoy a sweet and savory (even sippable) 12-day countdown to Christmas Day.

“Advent calendars are very popular in Mexico,” said Alessandra Pérez-Cirera, owner/innkeeper of La Palomilla, a Bed and Breakfast in Roma Norte, one of the hippest neighborhoods in Mexico City, Mexico.

“We put a lot of thought into how to create a unique holiday getaway and we think our guests will really enjoy eating their way to Christmas. Plus, we’re using organic and locally-sourced ingredients as much as possible. We want the recipes to be authentic as well as conscientious.”

Beginning December 13, 2018, the bed and breakfast will make one dish a day as part of its “Very Mexican Christmas” campaign. Like with most advent calendars, the fun is in the daily discovery though La Palomilla will be publically sharing its calendar (in case you must know ahead of time).

The bed and breakfast will also be blogging a new recipe each day at La Palomilla’s blog, and posting photos on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest.

The “countdown menu” for A Very Mexican Christmas Advent Calendar:
12 Days; December 13: Bean Tamales
11 Days; December 14: Buñuelos
10 Days; December 15: Chocolate Caliente
09 Days; December 16: Galletas de Navidad
08 Days; December 17: Noche Buena Salad

La Palomilla, Segunda Cerrada de Guadalajara 10, Roma Norte, 06700, Mexico City, Mexico, is a seven-room bed and breakfast that “caters to the modern traveler seeking an authentic experience” (La Palomilla is a term of affection for one’s closest group of friends). All rooms feature art by local artisans, and are named after the innkeeper’s closest friends (her own palomilla). Amenities, from bed sheets to soap are sourced from local area businesses.
